Simon and his Nest platform invested in i-love.com at seed stage and he and his team have been actively involved in the business ever since. Simon is a passionate visionary, with a seemingly endless supply of wise, tried and tested marketing, business, strategy and investment tips - which he shares generously with partners. As both a business partner and friend, Simon is dependable, supportive and talented and therefore comes highly recommended. Simon also has a penchant for picking up the cheque for dinner, which is a nice bonus!
Simon is a fantastic supporter and champion for our team. Beyond Nest being an angel investor, Simon has actively marketed us to a much wider community within a very short time frame. He is a one man guerrilla marketing campaign for which we are extremely grateful! In addition, Simon provides tremendous encouragement to me as an entrepreneur. I truly value both his marketing insights and his friendship.

I first met Simon in 2006 and over the past nine years I have witnessed the incredibly positive impact Simon has had on the start-up landscape in Hong Kong, through both his own entrepreneurial undertakings as well as the support he has given to this community. I have also had the good fortune of benefitting personally from Simon's dedication to Hong Kong start-ups through NEST's investment in my company, INFO/NATION. Simon has provided tremendous guidance and support that has helped position us for scalability and success. I feel grateful and fortunate to be part of Simon's start-up ecosystem.
